Board of Visitors Committee Membership (.pdf)
The Executive Committee is comprised of the Rector, the Vice Rector, the Secretary, and two additional members appointed by the Rector. Chairs of standing committees serve as non-voting ex officio members of the Executive Committee. The Rector serves as Chair of the Committee. The Executive Committee is authorized to convene and exercise the full power and authority of the Board between meetings of the Board whenever circumstances require immediate action to address matters of an urgent nature, or as the Board may otherwise direct. All Board members are noticed and invited to attend all Executive Committee meetings.
The chairs and members of the five standing committees are appointed by the Rector for terms of two years and serve until their successors are appointed. All Board members serve on at least two (2) standing committees. The agenda for each regular Board meeting shall include a report by each committee to the Board. Unless otherwise specifically provided by the Board, decisions/recommendations of standing committees (except decisions by the Academic Affairs Committee on review of negative tenure decisions) are advisory and must be ratified and approved by the Board of Visitors.
Special or ad hoc committees are established by the Board or the Rector for an expressed purpose and limited duration. In making appointments, the Rector should take volunteers into account. Special committees may have no fewer than four members appointed by the Rector, who serve at the pleasure of the Rector. The Rector designates the chair of special committees. Special Committees may take action only by majority vote of the full committee.
